Mascarilla is a painting attempting to beautify and soften the idea of death. Adorned in a ghoulish jewel encrusted skull and red flowers, she is trying to make death less intimidating. This face is fearful and conscious of its mortality and the only way to handle reality is to glamorize and mask the truth. Mascarilla is someone afraid of an end.
